These two cars are truly expensive in looks, and if we are talking about the price. As Mercedes-Benz will cost the owner at least $115,000; even though Jaguar will cost a little less and will need around $97,500 for the initial investment, it is still a considerable sum of money. But let’s see what they have under the hood. Mercedes got for itself the cool and powerful 4.7L 429hp V8, while Jaguar got the 5.0L 510hp V8. To say which engine is far better is very difficult as we need to also see the compfort of the ride. But on the fuel economy side we have to say that Mercedes is more economic as it goes for 15 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, while Jaguar loses 2 mpg in each of these sections.
